Cons: "did not like having to deplane then reboard"

Pros: "Good entertainment and decent food"
Cons: "Boarding. Starting from the boarding call where everybody rushed the aircraft and weren't organized to the space allocation for bags. There were a number of empty seats. I would guess the aircraft was running at 70 to 75% capacity. However, there was no space for our carry one. The passengers who go in earlier had put their bags flat and horizontal thus taking maximum room in the bins. The airhostes did nothing to control this or direct the bags. I repeatedly said that I could move the bags around to crate room. They took no heed. There were also a number of partially empty bins that had been closed early , and the air hostesses did nott allow me to look in to. Finallymy partner and I had to cross over to thebother side and place one of ou carry ons 19 rows in front of our assigned seats, and the other smaller bag in the seat on front of us. For a 6'3" man, this was very uncomfortable for 14 hrs. The rest of the flight was fine, but the boarding was extremely inefficient"

Pros: "Flight staff was excellent and friendly"
Cons: "our flight form Vancouver to Hong Kong was delayed 3 hours which made our connection in Hong Kong to Denpasar short. This resulted in our luggage not getting to Bali and we had to wait 36 hours to get it. As we were leaving on a tour the next day it made it very difficult to get the airline to understand where we needed our luggage and how important it was to get it. It took numerous phone calls, all of which were costly long distance, to get them to commit to getting our luggage to us"

Pros: "More drink options were offered."
Cons: "Flight delay"

Pros: "The seats were very comfortable. Made it easy to sleep even in a middle seat."
Cons: "We had to wait outside the boarding area until right before boarding. Also they did not allow me to reserve a seat when booking."

Pros: "The crew was very cordial and respectful."
Cons: "My son did not do well with the food on the trip. He became ill. The food did not smell particularly delicious."

Cons: "Delays Boarding was delayed and nobody communicated anything to us just left us sitting there with no clue. The food tasted like metal."

Pros: "We were booked on "S" class fares, which meant no seat selection until 48 hours before departure. However, we were able to get aisle seats with no problem. The crew was wonderful, service was great, and entertainment exceeded expectations."
Cons: "Boarding--but I never like the boarding process."

Pros: "Airport cleanliness and free WiFi"
Cons: "Excellent cabine service"

Cons: "I am not a frequent flier on Cathay. I would say I would think twice before buying my next ticket. Their call centers and counter staff leave a huge amount to be desired. I called their help desk when I couldn't access my reservation. My problem is their systems push your first and middle names together as a first name in their systems so I couldn't access my reservation. I really, really struggled understanding the person on their help desk. Then 48 hours before my flight I tried to book my seats and get my boarding pass. There were no seats for a party of 3 traveling together and only middle seats for the 3 of us. I waited for 20 minutes calling their support center. Of course their team could not help. All seats were booked. Luckily she offered to book my seats for the return and we managed to get the last 3 together in the back of the plane. If you book through Kayak recommend immediately calling to book seat numbers. I have ran out of room but returning from Vancouver their systems didn't read American passports and everyone tried to get tickets issued the staff at the desk laughed when told and said they knew it was a problem....but it did keep the many skiers busy in the self service line:) Also the desk opens 2hours and 59 minutes before departure so don't arrive early"

Pros: "Very good service and comfortable plane"
Cons: "Nothing"

Pros: "Entertainment system"
Cons: "Crew did not offer beverages or bottled water for coach passengers. The lights were left on for most of the redeye despite it being a 5 hour flight. The plane was old - there was food from the previous flight in my seat when I arrived. The blanks and pillows looked used and worn. Our flight arrived 45 minutes late with no explanation - it seemed to be a result of the slow/delayed boarding process. I will avoid Cathay Pacific going forward."

Pros: "I like the snacks and the ice cream"

Cons: "Service.. Got ignored when asked for coffee. Got ignored when food choice came around. Lady sitting beside me also got same service ignored"

Pros: "amazing they offer a meal!"
Cons: "as it was a red eye flight it would've been great if there were more seats open so one could sleep. the leg room is pretty small even for a not-tall person (5'4")"

Pros: "Great service. Nice plane. Flight attendants were attractive"

Pros: "It's not horrible; just not up to world class standards of Singapore, Virgin, Emirates, United, or top airlines."
Cons: "Business Class: You have to place your order for all food and drink at the start of the flight because the flight attendant disappears after serving. Want a refill of wine? Tough bananas. Forget to order dessert? You're out of luck."

Pros: "Crews were nice"

Pros: "Crew was amazing"

Pros: "Flight itself was great, but my luggage was lost in transit and staff have been very unhelpful in getting it back to me."

Pros: "your crew and the service provided"
Cons: "some video channel dose not work such an the flight map."

Cons: "waiting 2 hours for the plane to park"

Pros: "The treatment by the crew makes you feel like you’re home. Attendants were nice and helpful. Responsive."

Pros: "Beautiful plane and crew. On time. Comfortable economy seats. I can’t complain. The food was no worse than any other carrier in economy."

Cons: "Flight crews working at transfer desks were extremely unorganized and brought us to our terminal at the very last minute when the flight was calling for all passengers to board. Food was terrible. Ended up losing my baggage because they didn’t have enough time to put all the bags onto the flight and so I had to wait an extra two hours at the airport"

Pros: "same thing, food and crew were very courteous"

Pros: "The offer of assistance before I even asked for it; genuine concern"

Pros: "From the moment I entered the plane, I was greeted by smiling faces, smooth jazz, and a perfectly air conditioned temperature. It was at this moment that I knew I was in for a treat. There was so much leg room, I closed my eyes at one point and felt like I was laying on a beach in Hawaii. The plane had a fantastic movie selection and great cuisine. Even the crying baby in the row over was such a delight!"
Cons: "Only thing I didn’t like was how much I liked it!"

Pros: "Crew, comfort"
Cons: "No options for vegan or vegetarian meals"

Pros: "The ground stewardess assisted me in boarding my flight since the boarding gate was almost close"

Pros: "Don't normally like leaving from JFK, but it was a direct flight to Vancouver, and the price was right. Also, they included 2 free bags in economy, a big savings. Also the meals were ok, and wine was included. Entertainment system was fine."
Cons: "Would have rather left out of EWR, but for the price it was worth the bit of inconvenience."

Cons: "As we landed 15 minutes early we were forced to wait 45 minutes on the plane because our gate was occupied. after we finally got off and went through customs we waited another hour to receive our luggage. When the luggage finally came out the crews luggage was the first to come out. So we all watched as the crew gathered their luggage which took another 15 minutes. Shouldn't the paying customers be first?"

Pros: "Boarding was organized. Food was excellent. A couple of complaints from fellow passengers were handled very professionally by crews. Leg room was not an issue for me as I am an average Asian height but for medical purposes - there should be a policy for them to separate sick-looking passengers from older passengers and children."
Cons: "Seat covers were musty and smells old - they need to change those! Flight got delayed for almost one hour while trying to dock because there was no assigned hangar station for the plane! How can an international airline company allow themselves to be treated like that? The crew looked overworked - what are these airline companies doing to these young professionals - treat them like slaves? I'm not surprised - that's the Philippines companies ways - pay them just enough so they can come back the next time to work."

Pros: "Great service, lots of movies to watch with free headsets provided, seats reclined even in the economy seats, and flight was fast and smooth"
Cons: "Un-organized boarding with late gate change"

Pros: "The staff is always hospitable. I was pleased that they left a snack for me even when I was sleeping because when I wake up I was hungry. I also like the disposable toothbrush and paste provided. And bathrooms on the flight were clean, unlike some other airlines."
Cons: "The movie selection was not as good this time as my previous flight with Philippine Airlines, but not a big problem.problem"

Cons: "None"

Pros: "There wasn't much about this flight I liked to be honest."
Cons: "It was extremely delayed with no explanation from the crew."

Pros: "Seats should be improved, thicker and more comfortable. Honestly I preferred standing halfway thru the flight . It was like concrete!! Rice was so mushy thought it was mash potatoes at first . Crew was exceptional w their service and the washrooms were kept clean even towards the end of the flight. Very important."

Pros: "great price. smooth & relaxed flight! No cons"

Cons: "Delayed flight and suddenly PAL require each one of us to check in our carry baggage."

Pros: "Crew was friendly and helpful. Boarding was efficient and flight departed and arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Food is awful, and options are limited. I also think they need to reconsider playing music on the aircraft, it’s quite irritating."

Pros: "Seats and service in business class Crew"
Cons: "Food and choice of after dinner drinks No amenity bag Earphones were not noise canceling"

Pros: "Entertainment, Meal options, Baggage Allowance, Plane."
Cons: "Slow check in, strollers can't be taken to the plane and are not left outside the plane at arrival this is extremely inconvenient for families with small children. The website is useless. You cant check your reservation or select a seat until 24 hours before your flight."

Pros: "Excellent flight despite 90 minute delay at Vancouver. They emailed and called me several hours earlier"

Pros: "Nothing"
Cons: "No entertainment, small small seating space especially for tall passengers, flight crew who keep talking and gossiping out loud during the flight."

Cons: "Delayed boarding ( can be expected ) but very little information given about it"

Cons: "Stinky guy sit beside me but overall good"

Pros: "Smooth flight"
Cons: "Not enough leg room"

Pros: "Getting off the flight."
Cons: "More often than not, Philippine Airlines has been our airline of choice because we found their rates to be fair and flights direct and easy. Despite the fact that the PAL terminal was pretty poor, and the food on board was never really decent, we remained loyal to PAL for quite a few years. On our way back to Melbourne from Manila on June 17, Saturday, Colin, Hendrix and I were awaiting boarding at gate 10 for flight PR 209. Having flown with PAL from Melbourne to Manila (as well as with another airline from Manila to Manchester and back), we understood that the usual procedure was to allow passengers with infants to board first. Due to the lack of order (there were no clear queues in sight), Colin decided to ask 3 different PAL personnel if there was, indeed, a priority queue for people travelling with infants. ALL THREE PERSONNEL ASSURED US THAT THEY WERE NOT YET BOARDING AND THAT WE WOULD BE CALLED UPON PRIOR TO THEM LETTING ANYONE ELSE ON THE PLANE. 2 minutes later, a PAL personnel appears with signage that reads certain row numbers and begins to call out to ALL PASSENGERS FOR BOARDING. Colin swiftly rushes to the front (me and baby in tow) and demands an explanation as to why we were told one thing but are watching them act upon something completely different. I wish I was joking when I tell you that the personnel just stared blankly at us and then carried on checking boarding passes. No apologies, no explanation offered. As soon as we boarded, Colin turned to the first flight steward he saw and asked for a complaint form and told this could ONLY be done online, to which Colin requested we be given the email/web address upon take off. The seats assigned to us were on the right most side of the aircraft, a window and a middle seat. As Colin was placing our bags in the overhead compartment, the steward called to Colin from across the aisle (past the 3 seats in the middle of the plane) to introduce the purser, Jolly Bello. Please note this was happening while people were also trying to get past and get to their seats -and Mr. bello called out across the aisle, "I heard you have a complaint??" to which Colin, baffled, replied "yes do you want to come over here so we aren’t shouting over these people?". Colin yet again told this purser what the complaint was about and was asked (verbatim) "so would you like to make a complaint against THEM?" Would the correct protocol not be to 1. Apologise for any confusion, miscommunication or poor service, 2. Take some responsibility and acknowledge the complaint and 3. Maybe come approach us AFTER TAKE OFF and not while everyone is trying to board the plane? We are no longer choosing Philippine Airlines."

Pros: "Excellent crews"
Cons: "Delays"

Cons: "paid extra for a seat with leg room ...no tv . this is going to manila on a round trip ticket.coming back was ok."

Pros: "The crew went above and beyond and made sure I had a meal that I could eat despite not having ordered ahead. Everyone was friendly and things ran very smoothly."

Pros: "the service and overall quality and comfort of plane"
